L3.5-5 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The L3.5-5 classification describes a type of meteorite from the L group of ordinary chondrites, recognized for their moderate iron content and chondrule size. This meteorite is a breccia, consisting of fragments that range in metamorphic stage from type 3 (with abundant chondrules and minimal alteration) to type 5 (where minerals are more homogenized and chondrule outlines begin to blur), representing a spectrum of geological transformations within the L group.
